Water quality is a critical factor in the successful management of any golf course, park, commercial or residential property and poorly managed water will have a negative impact on the quality of the environment, irrigation systems, turf and the aesthetic value of the landscape. And this is where Otterbine steps in, delivering you a solution for improving water quality and adding beauty as well as function to your lake, pond or reservoir.
Water is one of the most precious of our recyclable resources and a source of natural beauty and recreation. The sight and sound of it is a welcome addition to the environment, but without due care and attention lakes, ponds and reservoirs can quite often end up being more murky than magical.
For almost 40 years Otterbine has led the market bringing high quality aeration systems, aerating fountains and underwater lighting to its customers. Rigorous performance and safety testing ensures delivery of high quality, efficient and reliable products to market, which are supported with the strongest, most inclusive warranties.
Surface spray systems
Surface systems provide the best aeration and vertical circulation in lakes less than 15 feet deep. Mixing surface and bottom waters, they break-up the thermal stratification, while creating convection patterns that break-up mats and clumps of algae and discourage mosquitos from breeding.
Horizontal aspirators are ideal for lakes ranging from three to 12 feet in depth that will benefit from a strong directional flow. These aspirators create artificial currents in irregular shaped ponds and lakes, breaking up algae mats in stagnant waters. They are chosen when no spray pattern is desired.
Air diffusion systems
Onshore air compressors pump air to diffuser manifolds at the bottom of the pond or lake. Most effective in waters with depths greater than 15 feet, they can also work in waters as shallow as four feet. In general, any bottom diffuser loses roughly 50 percent of its aeration and mixing capacity for every three foot increment of depth shallower than 15 feet.
